Webinar on Immigration Reform Issues for People With Disabilities and Older Adults

As Congress considers comprehensive immigration reform, it is important for the aging and disability communities to be engaged on this issue. Immigration reform provides opportunities to strengthen the direct care workforce and address the projected shortage of workers as the baby boom generation ages and more individuals need long-term services and supports. In addition, immigration reform can help eliminate discrimination against older immigrants and those with disabilities. The webinar will be held on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time. It is being hosted by a coalition of national aging and disability organizations working together to advance home and community-based services and supports. Space is limited, so please register early and share lines when possible.
